1  Bitcoin / Electrum / Is swiping for every or you have to doing from time to time?? on: November 21, 2015, 05:59:44 PM
Hi,

I have a very old official wallet and I'm thinking about moving to Electrum.

I have a few old addresses that receive money from time to time.

My understanding is that the swiping process will move the bitcoins from the old keys to the new deterministic format.

My question is if this is a "one time process" or if Electrum will keep monitoring the old address  and transfer any new amount that is sent to them...

2  Other / MultiBit / Multiple instances, each with its own wallet? on: September 24, 2015, 02:19:24 PM
Hi,

I'm using Multibit classic, I basically have 2 wallets, a very old one, with lots of bitcoind imported keys and a new one that only has a few  multibit keys.

The problem is that the "new wallet" missed a few transactions, you can see them on "blockchain.info" but they were not picked up by multibit.

I suppose that I could fix it with a "reset blockchain and transactions" command.

The problem is, that the "old wallet" takes THREE FULL DAYS to fully synchronize :-(

Is there a way to force synchronization ONLY on ONE wallet? (close and open the walled doesn't do the trick)

I was wondering if  there is a way to start 2 different instances of Multibit, each with a different wallet open?  This way "resetting the transactions" on the "new wallet (around 1 hour to synchronize) won't reset the "old wallet)

Cheers

3  Other / MultiBit / Any way to speed up the synchronisation?? on: August 28, 2015, 12:33:50 AM
Hi,

I have a dual boot system and I opened a a classic multibit wallet from Linux.

When I came back to Windows it says that it needs to synchronize with the network.

The problem is that it has been synchronizing a full day and it is still in Sept 2014 (my 1st transaction is from Jun 2013).

The fact that I have a slow internet connection won't help, but is there any way to speed up the process?

I was wondering if  there is a way to download the blockchain and do the synchronization locally or something similar

Cheers

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / After prunne, how to backup my wallet without dowload the full blockchain? on: July 24, 2015, 10:16:38 PM
Hi,

I was having space problems with my hard drive and after reading about the new block prune feature of the official client I gave it a try...

I only realized afterwords that you can use your walled with this feature enabled...  to late....  the block chain was pruned and I will need to re-download it again.

On my connection it will take days :-(

My idea is to backup the wallet and import the keys in multibit but...

Every time that I start bitcoin, it stays in the splash screen downloading the block chain... :-(

Is there a way to avoid that step and start the client just to do a  wallet backup?


Cheers

5  Other / Beginners & Help / List of ways to do FIAT->Bitcoins covertion on: July 17, 2013, 11:14:25 AM
Hi,

Is there a list of ways to buy bitscoins using FIAT currencies.

Looks like when you have Bitcoins everything is easy, but buying those initial bitcoins is not trivial.

Cheers
